Julie Esposito, an ENL teacher at Deasy Elementary School for 12 years, passed away on Oct. 12 after surgical complications of pancreatic cancer. Julie was the beloved wife of Paul Esposito and the loving mother of Sonia and James. She was the sister of Jacqueline Morra, also a teacher in the Glen Cove Schools. Her parents Joseph and JoAnn Giardina survive her.

Julie was always actively involved in the district by being part of the Deasy Sunshine Fund, International Night, PARP and Safety Committee. She loved her ENL students like her own children and supported them and their families. Julie’s smile and optimism were felt by everyone who knew her. She will be sorely missed by her Deasy friends and colleagues in Glen Cove, whom she considered family. Julie’s family would like to thank everyone from Glen Cove Schools for their support during this difficult time. The outpouring of love is a testament to Julie’s love of life and teaching.

Julie’s family is creating a scholarship to celebrate her life. The yearly fund will send an ENL student to YMCA summer camp. For more details about the scholarship, please contact Coleen Grove at cgrove@glencove.k12.ny.us or Steve Bromberg sbromberg@glencove.k12.ny.us.
